    Today is the day! A game that the team has built for since July. Training camp, preseason, then 16 games to earn the #1 seed in the playoffs. Today, the Patriots get to turn all that work into something meaningful.

    Just kidding, we’re going to continue talking about how Tom, Bill and Robert really hate each and the organization is falling apart.

    From Shank:

    “Sorry to hear that former Channel 5 sports reporter Clark Booth has written his last column for The Pilot. The estimable Booth, now retired in Florida, penned his sports pieces once a week for 43 years before deciding “I had run out of things to rant about.’’

    Glad he’s gone, although I only read what you guys posted here.  On my personal hit list for years.   Booth was incessant in his praise of the Holy Cross administration for effectively killing football back in the 80s, something that was not broken but the guy in charge decided it needed to be fixed.

    I’m sure he would (and Shank probably will too, so fuck him in advance) have ranted about them playing BC next  year, a game they’ll most certainly lose big.   My take on the matter.   Like Henry Hill said in Goodfellas:   “everybody has to take a beating some time.”

    We can only hope the Patriots do something egregious to Joe Gill and he tweets about it incessantly.

    Bad last month for retired sportscasters.    Keith Jackson will not be fumblin, bumblin this morning.

    He was the Voice of NCAA Football, but Jackson was the first PBP guy on ABC Monday Night Football, too.  After one year, they replaced him with Gifford.  Maybe KJ didn’t want to work alongside Cosell anymore. But more than likely Roone Arledge went with pretty-boy, celebrity Giff over a better and more experienced announcer.

    Jackson also called MLB games for ABC, including the infamous 1977 World Series, when Howard stepped on every one of KJ’s calls of Reggie Jackson’s three bombs in the final game. A lesser man would have murdered Cosell.

    Globe carrying a Schefter tweet saying that both Burkhead and Gillislee are inactive for tonight’s game.  No word on James White.

    Be prepared for the Falcons to become Team  X.

    Tara Sullivan is bringing it. Just discovered BB is rather stoic to the press and set in his ways.

    Thank heavens that the usual nationwide search pried Sullivan away from Price Shopper in Teaneck, NJ to vault to the home of writers down the hall from the turn in the hallway across the hall from the Hall of Fame. (You know, like the one who has Nancy Kerrigan’s phone number?)  She’s bringing a fresh perspective combined with the same sort of access that is a hallmark of Globe columnists.

    Clippers offered Griffin to the Wolves for KAT.

    I don’t think that’s a catch if the one in the Pats game was ruled incomplete.

    Was it a catch? Probably not.
    Did Darby interfere? Absolutely.
    Collinsworth is fucking awful.
    No rooting interest in this game, I’d nuke both cities and fanbases.

    Romo was told to really push this would be a good game for 4 quarters.

    Nantz and Romo were giddy that the Titans scored first.
    Now, not so much.
    Titans can’t adjust to uptempo.

    Yes, Tennessee, it’s all because of the refs.

    Hogan got held right before the 5 yard penalty.  They even out.

    No big deal but the Titans jumped before the FG attempt. No call not mentioned by Romo and Michaels.

    Romo did mention the timer is not a home team hire.    Figured they’d keep that legend going.

    Finn just linked to his Facebook post. And I was just about to post this as surpised his near death experience wasn’t a heart attack.

    On that Gronk incompletion, he was having the ball pried out as he was crossing the 20 yard line. If that was the goal line, people would want that called a touchdown.

    That’s a ridiculous throw on that 3rd and 10 cross the field popup thrown to Amendola. Yeah, Brady’s falling off a cliff.

    Maybe he doesn’t hate Gronk.
